Israel, to those who seek her destruction . . .

Some of them, surely. But that constant threat has to be tiresome eventually.

Yes. There was a long-running thread on the old forum entitled something like "There will never be peace for Israel." And it's true. Think about her neighbors . . .

The silver lining is that this constant threat forces israel forward as it must excelle in order to prevail. Other countries unaware of such threat have welcomed the "snake" and are helpless to avoid it's bite (cf. Western Europe).

"Israel, Cyprus, Greece and Italy agree on $7b. East Med gas pipeline to Europe"

The economic benefits of this to the four named countries are obvious. But maybe most important - the project completely avoids barbaric Islamic lands.

"Israel Will Be The Great Foreign Policy Debate Of The Democratic Primary"

A detailed discussion - worthwhile . . .

"A Pew Research poll last year found just 27% of Democrats said they sympathized with Israel."
